tiny little red itchy bumps

For about the past 2 weeks I have noticed very little tiny itchy red almost like bug bite marks popping up on my skin,I have been putting benydrl cream on them and that seems to help,there to tiny to be mosquito bites,and I live in colo so its not chiggers I read the gentlmens note about the scabies,and was wodering if that might be what I have.They don't itch all the time anc not at all in the morning after a shower but as the day goes by they become more itchy.I was wondering if you thought this was possibly scabies and is there something over the counter for this or do I need a perscription Thank You

This sounds lie a heat rash.  It may also be insect bites.  It does not sound like scabies.  I would treat the itch with an over-the-counter product like Benadryl cream or Sarna.  If the spots persist or spread, you should see a doctor.

Best.

I was visiting my mother about 4 weeks ago and woke up with a red spot, about the size of an oval 50cent piece, on my neck. It did not itch or spread so I wasn't cocerned with it, and niether was my 4th year Med-student boyfriend. I stopped using a new lotion thinking it was a reaction to that. About 5-6 days ago I broke out with raised spots that look like misquito bites on my chest, neck, and face; and boy do they itch, especially after I shower! Most of them are spots and others really have no shpe at all; some are small, and some are big. I moved to Omaha about 6 months ago, are there little bugs here I should be concered about? I'm seeing a dermatologist tomorrow, hopefully he can take my itch away.

Well I went to the dermatologist and it turns out I have Pityriasis Rosea, a form of Rosacea. It's most common in people 20-29 years, generally appears around the spring and fall time, and will clear itself up usally in 6-14 weeks with little to no reaccurances. There is no known cause or cure, only a few treatments to ease the itching.

I have got these little red bumps on the inside of my legs and its like they dry up and dead skin comes off and they are on my arms also. I thought that they might be flea bites but they are too little to be that because i do have a house dog. They have got me worried because i dont know what they are.

I was fully dressed with a jacket on and began to itch on my right arm. Pulled up my jacket and their was a bite as big as dime size and very swollen. 4 days later both my arms are covered with tiny red bumps from my elbows down and very itchy. Any ideas what this could be??
